    Anybody think this thing will erupt in a big way anytime in the relative short term?

    Some recent increase in minor quake activity has been noted, as well as some new geyser activity. Really makes you wonder why we're so focused on crap that supposedly mankind can affect, when other possibilities like this are out there lurking.



    Lots of other recent reports on this out there, too if you care to look them up.

    Sort term to a geologist is hundreds of thousands of years. I personally wouldn't worry about it in my life time.

    These sorts of things [should] make any rational thinking human being to realize just how small and insignificant mankind really is in the grander scheme.

    Maybe but it's going to happen in somebody's lifetime, again. Like playing the lottery. Odds are significant you won't win yet regularly somebody does.

    You only get sick if you go to a doctor. Don't go to a doctor, you don't get sick. You'll live forever.

    And what about all the hydraulic fracking going on in the nearby Bakken field? And the ground pressure imparted by all the potatoes and onions swelling up in the earth's crust next door in Idaho?

    Hey. The Climate Change freaks can make all sorts of wild claims, so can I.

    Besides stopping that fracing bs what exactly is anyone going to do about it? And no I have no proof fracing is exacerbating Yellowstone, but it sure as hell ain't healthy for the area it is being done in.

    Kind of like worrying if a big meteor is coming. Nothing we can do to stop it. Just pray to whatever pathetic gods you still think care. Plan the best you can to survive. Smile at death when it comes.
